Tips for Nominators (Academies of Faculty Service and Leadership)

Academies of Faculty Service and Leadership

Based on feedback from several years of conversation with nomination review committees, we've put together some tips for a successful package, for nominators to consider as they put together nomination materials.

  • The nominator statement should be written with the same care and thoroughness as a letter of endorsement - fully communicating how the criteria for selection are met by the individual being nominated
  • Nominators and those providing letters of endorsement should provide detailed examples of how each criterion has been met by the nominee
  • Specific attention should be given to providing explicit information as to the impact of the nominee's contributions in the university community 
    •     Give thought to the scope of impact (who, where?)
    •     Give thought to the importance of the contribution to the university community (why?)
